FLAI-CGIL launches campaign to stop exploitation in Italian tomato fields


Red Gold – from the reality to the truth

Every summer around 50,000 migrant workers, many of them undocumented, are brought by labour agents to Italy for the tomato harvest. The crop is key to the Italian economy and to production of world-famous Italian products like canned tomatoes and tomato paste. Yet the workers who harvest the tomatoes work in dangerous conditions often in breach of Italian labour law. Some, through violence and threats, end up virtually enslaved. They risk their lives when they try to escape or denounce the criminals who exploit them.

IUF affiliate FLAI-CGIL has for many years documented and denounced the phenomenon. The union has called on the Italian Government to take concrete action but to-date nothing has changed. So this year FLAI-CGIL decided it had to change tactics and launched the „Red Gold“ campaign to fight these exploitative employment practices, to raise awareness amongst workers of their rights and to encourage them to join the union.

From August 2-12 2009, 70 FLAI and CGIL union officers spent from dawn until dusk in the tomato fields of the Foggia province. They met thousands of men and women workers in the fields, talked about rights, distributed leaflets about legal pay rates in 15 languages, and tried to organize the tomato workers into the union.
